The Ontario Caregiver Coalition regularly provides submissions to government on issues of importance to caregivers, whether to provide advice and recommendations to government as it prepares its budget, to provide input on legislation or regulations, or to respond to public consultations. Below you will find some of our recent submissions.
Pre Budget Submission 2023
The Ontario Caregiver Coalition's 2023 Pre Budget Submission focused on addressing caregiver financial distress, a top policy priority for caregivers which has only become more pressing with the cost of living crisis and the pressures on Ontario's home and community care systems.
Submission on the Home and Community Care Regulations
In 2021, the Ontario government sought public feedback on revisions to the regulations under the Home and Community Care Act. The OCC recommended a number of measures to expand the remit of homemaking services, enable advocacy by caregivers for their loved ones, and strengthen self-directed care programs.
